Carval showed its latest and most comprehensive array of fully integrated HR and Payroll software at the CIPD HR Software Show on 14 - 15 June 2017 at Olympia West, London.
A big thank you to all the many visitors to this year's CIPD HR Software Show that took the time to visit Carval on stand H320. In addition to enquiries for HR software and Payroll software there was a lot of interest in Carval's fully integrated Time Management solutions - which include T&A, rostering and timesheets - and also outsourced payroll bureau services.
New at the show
The forthcoming release of HR Unity includes many additional features, enhancements and short-cuts to aid the everyday user, as well as specialist functionality for specific sectors, like Education, Construction and for Payroll Bureaus. For 2017, Unity Online, Carval’s Self-Service portal, has a new interface that streamlines interactions for HR/Payroll staff, managers and employees, saving time and helping to ensure that important personnel information is kept up to date.
The Apprenticeship Levy and Gender Gap reporting are supported by HR Unity as standard. In addition, Payroll Bureau users are now able to schedule dates for data, reports, RTI and BACS, and automatically produce costings for invoicing.
For the education sector, Carval's HR software for schools offers enhanced interfaces to Capita SIMS and iSAMS management information systems, and Sage X3 and Accounts IQ for financials, providing an end-to-end solution for the management of people and resources within schools and colleges. HR Unity is able to process term time working, multiple job posts, aggregated National Insurance, monthly and annual Local Government Pension returns.
For the construction industry, HR Unity now has HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) recognition for commercial software suppliers for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). As a result, contractors are able to verify subcontractors online immediately with HMRC, and also file their monthly return (CIS300) for subcontractors on their Payroll software, ensuring that the web filing process is straightforward, significantly reducing the burden of calculating tax and therefore minimising errors.
Carval provides a range of Payroll bureau and hosting services. Due to increasing success in the education sector, Carval also runs a specialist bureau for schools and colleges. Its wide range of solutions enables companies to take a flexible, pick and mix approach to Payroll and HR services, so that they can select a package to meet their exact requirements, whether it is processing Payroll completely in-house, totally out-sourcing or a combination of the two, with the option of fully integrated HR.
The Carval Payroll bureaus are BACS approved, using Carval’s own Payroll software which calculates all statutory payments (SMP, SPP, SSP, SAP and student loads). They process incremental progression and pay awards, company sick pay and maternity pay, other third party BACS payments including HMRC, pensions, union fees and court orders.
The Carval Payroll Bureaus can help with the assessment of employees for auto enrolment, producing monthly workforce pension letters. The service provides monthly management reports prior to payday, and provides one payslip per employee, regardless of the number of posts held, simplifying the process for staff and saving significant costs on per-payslip charging.
John Ovington, Sales and Support Director at Carval commented; “At Carval we are committed to harnessing the latest proven technology to support new ways of working and make life easier for our customers. We provide an increasingly wide range of different options for enabling customers to benefit from our software, for example, on-premise or hosted solutions, and mobile apps that can be used by staff while on the go. We automate as many processes as possible to save time and reduce errors, and have developed the software to cover more areas, like rostering, and provide a range of Payroll processing services. For organisations with up to 10,000 employees, Carval aims to be the one-stop-shop for HR, Payroll and staff time management.”
